THAMRYS

God of Musical Conceit.

The son of music maestro PHILAMMON, he was convinced of his own superior musical talents. After a failed attempt to woo HYACINTHUS from rival APOLLO, he devoted himself to his zither and soon rated himself better than the MUSES.

"Compared to me, those MUSES are rubbish. Call that music? Sounds like a fire in a pet shop. And APOLLO needs some new chords as well as new strings."

As music was regarded as a sacred Gift of the Gods, the MUSES were not amused. They banded together and challenged him to a concert competition.

Despite a concerted effort, THAMRYS failed to score with the audience and lost miserably. APOLLO was delighted to award him the winners-up prize of blindness and deafness. He was also permanently barred from the Musicians Union.
